Why they'll love itLearn a new skill, or get better at a freshly learned one. Great for developing hand-eye co-ordination and honing fine motor skills. Finished fox has cute pointy ears and a coal black nose. We almost can't bear to sell her.
Child friendly instructions (have been written for and tested on children before coming to market).
Nothing beats being able to say to your friends 'I made this!'
Why you'll love itWe love the whole 'make, do and mend' philosophy, and Buttonbag personifies this brilliantly. Beautiful packaging. A lovely gift, especially from a grandma or auntie who can be on hand to help out with any knitting queries!
Makes a great 'unplugged' gift for tweens if you are looking for pursuits to tempt them away from a screen.
Buttonbag was originally two innovative ladies who had a stall at Greenwich market, fast forward some years and they are now a popular brand.
